In this groundbreaking book , psychologist Dr. Carl Alasko reveals that Emotional Bullshit is everywhere and it's growing stronger and more hazardous to our psychological well-being every day. From the highest precincts of commerce and politics to the most average, everyday conversations, we're all affected by its toxicity-especially within our most intimate relationships. And yet most of us remain largely unaware of its influence. Alasko explains that this is because Emotional Bullshit entails three interlocking dynamics inherent to our psychological structure-denial, delusion, and blame.
Drawing on extensive case studies from his private practice over the past twenty years, Alasko demonstrates that whether it's a casual 'I forgot,' or a premeditated deception, Emotional Bullshit always erodes trust and drives people apart. His book outlines a path for recognizing and breaking free from this most vicious of cycles.
